With our customisable fabric options, you can create an outdoor space that not only looks fantastic but also provides the shade and comfort you need.

Cassettes and weather hoods

Cassettes and weather hoods are important considerations when choosing folding arm awnings for your outdoor space. Cassettes provide protective housing for the awning when it is retracted, keeping it safe from dirt, debris, and harsh weather conditions.

This not only helps to extend the lifespan of your awning but also ensures that it always looks clean and well-maintained. Weather hoods, on the other hand, offer additional protection by shielding the fabric from rain or strong sunlight when the awning is in use.

They help to create a more comfortable outdoor environment by blocking out excess heat and glare. With cassettes and weather hoods, you can enjoy your outdoor living area all year round, no matter what the weather brings.
